So after posting my sketches of Queen Brising I decided to take on the task of creating and chronicling each Valkyrie queen from Freya (queen during the events of MLP FiM) all the way through to Brising (queen during my Successors era) which is a span of 1000 years. Thankfully I designed my Valkyrie with extended life spans. Even so there are 12 of them altogether plus some extras. Ah well. I hope y'all like Valkyria!
Many of you are probably already familiar with Queen Freya having seen her here valkyrie-girl.deviantart.com/a…
and read about her here valkyrie-girl.deviantart.com/a…
but she hasn't really gotten any attention of her own.
She is Queen of the Valkyrie when Twilight Sparkle accidentally discovers their hidden valley. She succeeded Queen Valmya the Falcon who stepped down after loosing a wing in battle. Freya was crowned at the age of 90 and reigned for 170 years when she was killed in battle against the king of the frost giants. The most notable events of her reign was the birth of Raven, who will become one of the greatest and most mysterious queens in Valkyria history, and for being the first queen in ages to make contact with the outside world. With the help Twilight Sparkle, Queen Freya forges the first alliance with Equestria, one which remains in tact for the reign of the next four queens and is only broken when Queen Hjalma the White goes mad (which in all reality wasn't really her fault...but that is a story for later...).
Fraya is most renown for her kindness and concern for the well being of her subjects. She is a proficient warrior but only out of necessity. Her real strength is in her administrative abilities, in governing fairly and keeping the peace between the various Valkyrie factions. She is also a great mother, oddly enough for a race that does not give birth.
Her cutie mark is the rune Othala which means "Inheritance" and the rune Sowulo which means "Sun" which represents her destiny as queen.
